Honorary Citizenship of Rome
on Guglielmo Marconi

On May 7 1903, up to the Capitol Hill, in the Hall of Orazi and Curiazi, in the presence of the Italian Sovereigns, the Mayor of Rome, Prospero Colonna declared:

Marconi's Work is great. Marconi's Work is a Roman Work.
From today Marconi is a Citizen of Rome.

Then the Father of Radio read a lecture about his discoveries, for the first time in Italy.

After the ceremony Guglielmo and his mother got into a "landau". Some students from La Sapienza University unhitched the horses from the open carriage and pulled them in trumph for a good way.
